National Philharmonic’s dynamic 2017-18 season, led by Maestro Piotr Gajewski, opens with a star-studded evening featuring violin royalty Sarah Chang playing Bruch’s passionate Violin Concerto No. 1 and Grammy winner Zuill Bailey performing the “King” of cello concertos, Dvořák’s B minor Concerto. A different type of star-studded performance takes place in January -- a multimedia night featuring Holst’s Planets. Collaborating with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the concert uses original footage of our solar systemto take the audience on a space voyage. The broad canvas of The Planets is juxtaposed with Debussy’s symphonic poem La Mer, undoubtedly the greatest depiction of the shifting moods of the mighty ocean.
Two concert operas are showcased later in the year: Gershwin’s groundbreaking Porgy and Bess with Kevin Deas, who has garnered international acclaim for his portrayal of Porgy, and Mozart’sdelightful opera buffa, Cosi fan tutte. The National Philharmonic Chorale participates in both concert operas and performs its annual Messiah under the direction of Stan Engebretson. The Chorale is also showcased in a concert juxtaposing the rich traditions of Rachmaninoff’s Vespers with new sounds by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo's Northern Lights and The Lake Isle.
Other exciting soloists taking the stage include Sphinx Competition winner Melissa White in Brahms’ magnificent Violin Concerto; concert master Colin Sorgi playing Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2; and a Philharmonic favorite, Brian Ganz, performing his 8th annual all-Chopin recital and the composer’s moving Piano Concerto No. 2 in a concert celebrating Poland 100th anniversary of regaining independence.
We look forward to seeing you at the concerts!
